    Vivo Escondido is one of the best hostels I have stayed at. The staff are all great and get involved with the guests constantly. You are a two minute walk from a gorgeous beach. And all of the facilities are cleaned constantly making the place well cared for. And to top it off they have a great pet dog! No doubt you will have a great experience here, 100% recommendation when in Puerto Escondido.

    Very Good

    The hostel is a quick walk to the beach and restaurants. I booked a 6 bed dorm and got placed into an 8 bed. The room door was opened all night and very noisy since it’s connected to a social room. Breakfast starts at 8 but at 8:30 breakfast wasn’t made yet and I had to leave for lessons. The hostel is a mansion decorated really nice but honestly I’d choose another hostel.

    Great location close to the beach and they have a nice pool, other than that we were not very impressed with the hostel, it really seemed to lack atmosphere, there were a lot of voulenteers and it seems as if they run the place. Shortened our stay and moved to another hostel
